Today, We Are Hunted announced it has been acquired by Twitter, confirming a CNET report that the music discovery service was already being integrated with Twitter’s music products.

Created by a group of Australian software developers in 2009, We Are Hunted creates a kind of Billboard chart for online music, monitoring popular songs on blogs, social media, message boards, and BitTorrent.

As a result of the acquisition, Wearehunted.com will shut down and user accounts will be closed, a note on the music site’s home page explained.

Wearehunted.com founder Stephen Phillips wrote this in the note announcing the acquisition, “While we are shutting down wearehunted.com, we will continue to create services that will delight you, as part of the Twitter team,”
